UMPIRING NEWS:

With all the development of our fabulous umpires with some achieving awards and many almost there – we’ve brought back THE RULE OF THE WEEK:   

‘Was that a goal?’  often gets asked at the end of a quarter – 1) it is NOT the WDNA buzzer that decides the end of the game, it is the umpire’s whistle and the ball HAS to pass completely through the ring.  2) Can you score an ‘own’ goal – apparently yes.  See rule 10.1 below.

  • 10.1 REQUIREMENTS FOR SCORING A GOAL
  • i)  If the whistle to end play or to hold time is blown before the ball has passed completely through the ring no goal is scored.
  • (iii)  If a defending player deflects a shot for goal and the ball then passes above and completely through the ring a goal is scored.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF OUR UMPIRES SO FAR:

Nicola Stevens is continuing on her umpiring pathway by achieving her National B Badge on 21 May on a QSNL Game.  Congratulations Nicola! Rangers are proud to have you on our team.

 

Toni Vowles – Congratulations to Toni on receiving her (long over due) WDNA Umpire Award on Umpire Appreciation Day. Another very welcome member of Rangers Team White – Well done!

TRAINING – 31 MAY

We know that there is a footy match on tomorrow night but training is going ahead as usual, unless your coach advises otherwise.

  • “If you only ever give 90% in training
  • then you will only ever give 90% when it matters.”
  • Michael Owen (Liverpool & International Soccer Champ)

Rangers supports “Let kids be kids – stop poor sideline behaviour in junior sport”  – Watch the video on this link and you may never say “watch your passes” again.  Let kids be kids

PS –  GO QUEENSLAND!
